If Apple did sue “trolls posting BS, FUD, and lies in forums or the tech press” AI’s forums would be almost empty.
It upsets me that Apple is getting involved with Hip Hop Thug Rappers and all the negative connotations that come with that decision. What’s next, a drive by shooting with bullet holes in Tim Cook’s office window at 1 Infinite Loop? A Tupac hologram at the next WWDC? A Biggie Small statue in the atrium of the spaceship when it’s complete?    This really, really concerns me.
Expectations are irrationally high. Tech wannabe spec mongers want everything under the sun. Not gonna happen.

Trolls bristle when it is pointed out that Google is an advertising business whose product is consumer data like spending habits, website visits and the like. Google is not a ‘high tech’ company by any means. It makes its money the old fashioned way by standing on a soapbox and hawking information.
Except for the fact that we always have oodles of leaked specs, prototypes, and mockups of every new iPhone coming. Why the ‘cone of silence’ over this rumored product?
Well whatever price it is be prepared for the onslaught of the price obsessed crowd deeming it overpriced garbage and a flop.
